Hello community,

The output from the pyspark query below produces the following output

83554-spark.png

The pyspark query is as follows:

#%%
import findspark
findspark.init('/home/packt/spark-2.1.0-bin-hadoop2.7')
from pyspark.sql import SparkSession
spark = SparkSession.builder.appName('ops').getOrCreate()
df = spark.read.csv('/home/packt/Downloads/Spark_DataFrames/HumanResources_vEmployeeDepartment.csv',inferSchema=True,header=True)
df.createOrReplaceTempView('HumanResources_vEmployeeDepartment')
myresults = spark.sql("""SELECT
  FirstName
 ,LastName
 ,JobTitle
FROM HumanResources_vEmployeeDepartment
ORDER BY FirstName, LastName DESC""")
myresults.show()

Can someone show me how to save the results to a text / csv file ( or any file please)

Thanks Carlton

myresults.coalesce(1).write.format('csv').save("/tmp/myresults.csv", header='true')

df.coalesce(1).write.format('csv').save("/home/cldraproc/shobhit/ccorp.csv", header='true');
